deadmau5 trolls Zeds Dead For Coffee Run Rip

The mighty infamous deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman) took to twitter to call out Zeds Dead for their "Coffee Break" series which has been running on Vice's thump lately.   If you're not familiar, deadmau5 has been making some pretty big waves with his "Coffee Run" series.

Zimmerman's concept (an admitted rip from Jerry Seinfeld's Comedian's In Cars Getting Coffee) features various EDM stars to pseudo celebs (Kaskade to Tommy Lee) going to grab coffee with the mau5 in his Ferrari.  In the series, they talk shop, crack jokes, and provide some color commentary on this crazy world we live in.

The Coffee Run has been a runaway success, getting substantial media coverage. It gives fans a rare glimpse to see how some of their favorite artists interact without a filter (but we all know the deadmau5 doesn't have one).

It was only a matter of time before a copy cat show popped up, and it looks like fellow Canadian artists Zeds Dead took the honor. The show is conspicuously called "Coffee Break", and while it doesn't take place in a Ferrari, it's kinda the same concept, except with edits and probably a filter.
